with republicans over the issue of raising the debt ceiling -- the amount of money the nation is legally allowed to borrow. >> jimmy: oh, yeah. [ laughter ] when it comes to raising the debt ceiling, the president's having a hard time getting it up. [ laughter ] seems the gop ain't rubbing him the right way, especially with the country $16.4 trillion in debt. ♪ so we're still in debt but it's all right the united states clearly couldn't get any broker ♪ ♪ got to liquidate its assets just like al roker ♪ [ laughter and applause ] ♪ >> while most republicans oppose raising the debt ceiling, several have voiced dissension within gop ranks, and democrats are now hoping this will pressure their house leader, john boehner, and soften his hard-lined stance. >> jimmy: mm mm mm. take it from my man, brilly willy. ain't nothing worse than a soft boehner. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] ain't nothing worse. especially when it starts leaning a little to the left. [ laughter ] and it's going to take more than a magic pill like the trillion dollar coin to stimulate growth in the private sector.

at the difference of those three dates the debt ceiling involves a great amount of money interested. i don't think that's conspiracy toreconspiracytoreal. would they have a say in those matters? i think so. >> i would agree that they're kicking it over to the senate. as we've seen in the last budget debates that we've had the senate is really the only body that can do anything or get anything done. that's where the compromise will happen. we'll see--the house will come up with their paul ryan budget on steroids that they're planning right now and the senate will have to find compromise or common ground that the white house can agree to as well, and then we'll be back where we were at the end of 2011. i think the republicans definitely do--are taking a moment to regroup so they can fight that battle, and it will be a similar battle to the ones we've seen before. >> cenk: grace wyler, michael shure, we appreciate it. mark my words, they will shut the government down. they will do whatever they need to do. they will be as obstinate as humanly possible. they will sacrifice everything, the republicans

no spending problem, why do we need to extended debt ceiling. why do we need more money? >> the president is running out of excuses. he can't blame the last administration because he is the last administration. president obama has spent more and created more debt than any president in history. yet we've got the slowest recovery of any recovery in history. i spent last summer going around my state talking to small businesses, dozens of them. it's very clear to me what is happening now. they were already beginning to pull back because of the expected costs of obamacare. the dodd-frank legislation that was federal takeover of financial system is making it harder for businesses to get loans. you look at the expected tax increases which businesses we're trying to plan for. uncertainty goes back to the president's policies. it's not obstruction, i wish we had more of it. policies in place are hurting our economy. even more than that, the uncertainty from the mounting debt on individual americans is putting us in a position where it's going to be harder to dig out of it. >> greta: if we don't ag

. the debt ceiling increased the authority to borrow more money -- increase, the authority to borrow more money is all about future spending, which is part of the reason why some of us think this is a very sensible moment to try to bring some discipline to that future spending. and what would happen if we don't raise the debt ceiling right away? well, if we don't, we would have to have a 25% cut in all government spending, and that's -- that's pretty massive. that's pretty problematic. now, the administration and some actually go way overboard in the threats that they attach to this. they threaten to inflict the maximum possible economic damage if the debt ceiling isn't raised promptly upon the point at which they run out of their maneuvering room. so you hear threats about default on our debt and senior citizens won't get their social security check and our military folks won't get paid, all kinds of the most disruptive, most damaging and most dangerous kinds of outcomes are threatened by the administration. now, this is unnecessary, this isn't true, this isn't what would happen, but the

safer, stronger and more secure. >> also out of d.c., a potential crisis over the debt ceiling. looks like it will be averted, at least until the spring. the republican-controlled house passed a bill allowing the government to avoid default and continue borrowing money and paying its bills until may. it also requires lawmakers in both chambers to pass a budget if they actually want to keep getting paid their salary. with the senate set to sign on house speaker john boehner credited the bill for forcing the democrats' hand. >> after four years i'm glad the senate has finally decided to act. because there is no indication that we're going to do a budget until we announced last week that we were going to move this bill that said pass a budget or no pay. >> paul ryan wears that orange tie a lot. boehner wears that green tie quite a bit. the democrat-controlled senate has not produced a detailed budget in 1,366 days. yesterday democratic leaders said the measure is actually a victory for the president. >> i'm not sure what happened at the house republican retreat last week, but it sure had

that would prevent the united states from hitting the debt ceiling. at least right away. it's dubbed the no budget no pay act. it was proposed by republicans and it lets the treasury department borrow money until mid-may, as long as congress passes a budget by april 15th. if lawmakers don't come up with a blueprint for the budget, the measure states their pay will be withheld. constitution doesn't allow the no pay thing to really happen, so that is a pr stunt. any way, that's why the act passed. 33 republicans, 111 democrats voted against it. one dem who did, congresswoman debbie wasserman schultz and she tells us the bill wasn't a clean debt ceiling increase and only prolongs economic uncertainty. it only extents it for a few months so she's right about that. >>> in the last 48 hours or so, u.s. cargo planes made at least five trips into mali transporting about 80 french troops and more than 124 tons of supplies. a spokesman for the u.s./africa command tells us the airlifts began monday, are going to go on for several more days. i couldn't help but notice this on the front page of y
